LucidSound has announced an exclusive and a limited edition of two of their headsets: the LS35X (which we recently reviewed) and the LS50 gaming headsets.
Rose Gold LS35X Xbox Wireless Headset
First off, the LS35X Xbox Wireless Headset is getting the rose gold treatment. Designed for gamers looking to make a statement, the new colorway has a rose gold frame and a pure white microphone and earcups.
Like the standard LS35X, the elegantly colored version features LucidSound signature control, high performance audio, and best-in-class functionality. Other features include:
- Xbox Wireless: 100% wireless using Xbox Wireless technology, one button sync.
- Premium Audio: Custom tuned 50mm speakers with state-of-the-art neodymium drivers specifically engineered for gaming provide amazing surround sound for Xbox One and Windows 10 devices.
- Designed for Comfort: Ultra-plush, easily replaceable gel-cooled oval earcups include advanced memory foam for superior comfort during long play sessions.
- Advanced Dual Mic System: Removable, flexible boom mic for intense gaming sessions and built-in discreet mic (ideal for phone calls). Mic-monitoring lets you hear your own voice, so you don’t have to shout.
- Lightweight Metal Frame: Durable metal frame for strength and flexible headrail for a comfortable fit.
- Intuitive Controls: Rotate and adjust volume with the left ear control, push the center button to mute game audio. Rotate to control chat mix and push the center button to mute the mic on the right ear.
The rose gold LS35X will be available exclusively at Best Buy later this year for US$179.99.
Limited-Edition Snoop Dogg LS50
The LucidSound LS50 features both wireless and Bluetooth connectivity for gamers on the go. The LS50 features LucidSound’s signature on-ear controls, 50mm speakers, 20 hours of battery life, and a refined design aesthetic. Not only that, the LS50 is getting the Snoop Dogg treatment and stamp of endorsement.
“I’ve bought dozens of headphones and spent thousands of dollars and LucidSound are the best I’ve ever had. All the homies in party chat can’t stop talking about how good these headsets are. They love how you can mute the conversation on the fly.”Snoop Dogg
The Limited Edition Snoop Dogg LS50 features a white colorway with the Snoop Dogg logo across the headband. LucidSound is obviously excited to work with the legendary hip hop artist.
“Snoop Dogg has been using LucidSound headsets for his Mixer streams for some time and we are excited to work with him on a limited-edition product. The LS50 headset is a true hybrid gaming and music headset featuring wireless audio and chat technology for console, PC and mobile gaming, music, and communications.”Chris Von Huben, CEO of LucidSound
Features of the LS50 gaming headset include:
- Signature Controls: The LS50 features the most intuitive volume and mute controls, which is fully integrated into the aesthetic design of the headset.
